# If there was a perfect play from both sides, but each player was allowed to do 2 moves every time, would white win?

Imagine a game where players are allowed 2 moves instead of one. If there were perfect play from both sides, would White win?

• What happens if the first of those two moves is a check?

• I'm going to state something basic you've probably heard of. Black has no winning strategy. For if Black did a Knight moving first to f3, then g2 for white would force Black to move with no change in position. Thus the colors would reverse. So then White would then simultaneously have a winning strategy with the color swap, and also not have one. This is a contradiction. Thus Black can't have a winning strategy.
